The Macho Minute is about my dog Macho, a chihuahua I rescued in January of 2010. Macho was rescued from a house in Dearborn, MI where 100+ other Chihuahuas were found alive and another 150+ were found dead amongst garbage piled from floor to ceiling. Due to these living conditions, Macho is very timid at all times. I created the Macho Minute to share Macho's stories and progress, as well as my joy of rescuing a dog who needs extra love and care.

A Good Weekend!


I'm not too sure what was going on this weekend, but Macho was pretty excited about it. He seemed happier, more energetic, and more comfortable than he usually is. I definitely liked it! Yesterday when I left for work, he tried to follow me out as if he didn't want me to leave. He never does that! Do you think it's the sunshine? Or maybe the fresh air he got when I opened the windows on Sunday when it was 70 degrees here in Michigan? Hopefully this good weather makes for not only a good weekend but a good summer for Macho!

Wasn't the Michigan weather great this weekend?!

He is still doing well and been acting the same. I am hoping it keeps up! We haven't had him on heartworm medication since he doesn't go outside in the winter, so we need to get him back on it before we take him outside. I think he really needs that fresh air!

Yup, I think Spring does that to dogs....mine seem to be coming out of their "couch-potato" attitudes too. Mike gets excited everytime we head in the direction of up his hanging-up harness and leash that signals a walk to him and Jenny finally comes outside on her own and doesn't need to be carried (meaning "forced"). Aah, Spring!
